DeeJay simply as DJ, is a job which people think is a male dominated profession.
Especially, being a DJ is challenging for girls. Not many girls can join this DJ group, especially in Macao. There are very few local DJs and not more than five female DJs in Macao. DJ Veron C (Veronica C), 23, is one of the highlighted model DJs in Macao. But money doesn’t grow on trees; her sacrifices are as much as what she gains. She earns a lot of money as an artist in a DJ agent company.
DJ Veron C is her name in the DJ circle. “Veron” is a nickname for Veronica. She said that music plays an important role in her life like in the lives of other DJs or musicians, she thinks that music is her companion. She wants to make her music as the enjoyment and pillar of resonance for her audience. Being a female DJ, many people will categorize and label her as one of those who do not know how to play music or produce music. DJing is a male dominated industry, but Veron C does not really compare herself with other male DJs. She thinks everyone plays differently from one another, as long as she is playing music and people are enjoying, she is doing her job well as a DJ – that’s all that matters, she says.
Veron C always keeps these words in her mind: “If you believe in something, just keep on doing it, one day your dream must come true.”
She gets the real DJ mixing and scratching skills. She doesn’t just speak out, but is really doing it as she gets passionate for DJing. She says, “To become a successful DJ, one must give it 110% effort, regardless of gender.”
DJ Veron C tells people that music is like her religion …
She writes that a long time ago when she first started DJing although she guesses it is true in some senses. For her music, is her passion. She refers to it as her religion in a more spiritual way. It’s an escapism that not only gives her a great enjoyment but also gives her time to think and make sense of the world.
Love is the Music
Many people believe that it is difficult to become a female DJ, and as any other male-dominated profession, Veron C states that it is indeed difficult to look for jobs as a female DJ. There are various points she wants to share with women who want to become DJs. She states that you must “ keep going to places, especially clubs. Go to places that have open mic night, and different DJs play. You can go to raves or parties. Sometimes they will let local people play too, or you could do it by broadcasting you music online. There are lots of different things you can do!”
It is indeed true that practice makes perfect! There should not be a free moment that a female who is truly serious about DJ is not practicing. As a matter of fact, Veron C says, "It's best to practice as much as you can"! The speculation about it being harder as a female DJ rings true for Veron C. When asked if it is harder, easier or about the same for a woman to be a DJ, she responds, it's "harder, because it is male dominated, and male oriented...by saying that, it's not so much that you have to prove yourself as a woman, but you have to prove your skills for sure! All of the big headliners are usually men”.
